Polynice was last in the NBA in February 2004, when the Clippers waived the then-39 year old before the playoff deadline so that he could catch on with another NBA team. He didn't. But Polynice did squeeze out bit parts of two more years in the world of professional basketball, playing 18 games in 2004/05 with the Michigan Mayhem of the CBA, and briefly being the player/coach for the Los Angeles Aftershock of the ABA in 2005/06.

Polynice was the head coach of the Long Beach Breakers in the ABA for the 2007-08 season. Like all ABA teams, they were short lived.
